Book Description :

/inca/publications/misc/creaghcov.htmAbout the cover This book contains twenty chapters covering a wide range of research in the fields of scientific conservation of art and archaeometry. The common thread is the use of radiation in these analyses. The term "radiation" is used in the widest possible sense. The book encompasses the use of electromagnetic radiation in its microwave, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, x ray and &ggr; ray forms and the use of particulate forms such as electrons, neutrons and charged particles for which the Planck's Law relation applies. In many cases there is an interplay between the two forms: for example, proton induced x ray emission (PIXE), secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). As far as possible the chapters have been arranged in order of ascending particle energy. Thus it commences with the use of microwaves and finishes with the use of &ggr; rays. The authors were chosen on the basis of their expertise as practitioners of their particular field of study. This means that, for example, the mature fields of study such as the IR and UV study of paintings have been written by senior researchers, whereas for the emerging fields of synchrotron and neutron techniques the chapters have been written by talented researchers at the commencement of their careers.

Book Description :

Atomic Radiation and Polymers examines the effects of radiation on polymer materials. The title deals with chemical changes that took place when polymers are exposed to radiation, and how these changes affect the physical properties of the polymers. The text first covers the interaction of radiation and matter, along with radiation sources and dosimetry. Next, the selection deals with the general properties of long chain polymers. The text also details the organic molecules and irradiated polymers. Chapters 22 to 24 tackle the radiation-induced changes in nuclear chain reaction, while Chapter 25 discusses the irradiation of polymers in solution where both direct and indirect effects occur. The next series of chapters details the theoretical aspects of reactions between the initial acts of ionization or excitation. The last two chapters cover the conductivity change at low radiation intensities, along with the data on radiation damage at very high intensities. The book will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners from the field of nuclear science and polymer technology.

Book Description :

In this book the characteristics of synchrotron radiation, including insertion device radiation, are described and derived from first principles. The reader is first introduced to the subject in an intuitive way in order to gain familiarity with the underlying physical processes. A rigorous mathematical derivation of the theory follows. Since the characteristics of synchrotron radiation are intimately connected with the parameters of the electron beam and its accelerator, a basic introduction to electron beam dynamics and accelerator design is included. The book is aimed at graduate students and scientists working with synchrotron radiation.

Book Description :

This book concisely reviews important advances in radiation oncology, providing practicing radiation oncologists with a fundamental understanding of each topic and an appreciation of its significance for the future of radiation oncology. It explores in detail the impact of newer imaging modalities, such as multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) using fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and other novel agents, which deliver improved visualization of the physiologic and phenotypic features of a given cancer, helping oncologists to provide more targeted radiotherapy and assess the response. Due consideration is also given to how advanced technologies for radiation therapy delivery have created new treatment options for patients with localized and metastatic disease, highlighting the increasingly important role of image-guided radiotherapy in treating systemic and oligometastatic disease. Further topics include the potential value of radiotherapy in enhancing immunotherapy thanks to the broader immune-stimulatory effects, how cancer stem cells and the tumor microenvironment influence response, and the application of mathematical and systems biology methods to radiotherapy.

Book Description :

Radiation Pathology is an up-to-date compendium of the effects of ionizing radiation on human tissues. It will be of great value to radiation oncologists, pathologists, and other professionals. The early chapters deal with basic science: physics, radiobiology, genetics, etc. The circumstances of human exposures (therapeutic, accidental, warfare) are then considered in the light of extensive epidemiological data. Acute radiation syndromes and radiation cardiogenesis are described in detail, including recent information on mechanisms of oncogenesis. For the benefit of readers who are not radiation oncologists, two chapters outline the current uses of radiation in therapy and in diagnosis, including the various applications of radionuclides. The bulk of the text deals with radiopathology and its morphologic expression. An overview orients the reader and classifies the main types of lesions. The chapters on specific organs or organ systems are consistently divided into sections to facilitate rapid retrieval of information on: normal structure, tolerance doses, experimental studies, morphology and pathogenesis, and clinical manifestations. The authors' lucid, well-organized descriptions will inform radiation oncologists about the types of injury to be expected, and will guide pathologists in making differential diagnoses.

Book Description :

This book is a practical guide to the use of modern radiation therapy techniques in women with gynecological cancers. Step-by-step instruction is provided on simulation, contouring, and treatment planning and delivery for cancers of the cervix, endometrium, vagina, and vulva. Beyond external beam radiation delivery, full details are presented on three-dimensional brachytherapy at all sites for which it is applicable. Moreover, in-depth guidance is offered on the various advanced techniques of radiation delivery, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image guidance for external beam and brachytherapy, and stereotactic body radiotherapy. Radiation therapy is a critical component of the multidisciplinary management of gynecological tumors. With modern technology, both external beam radiation and brachytherapy can be delivered in a highly conformal way. This requires precise contouring and accurate planning techniques. In clearly describing the indications for and the delivery of quality radiation therapy for gynecological tumors, this book will benefit radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, radiation therapists, and radiotherapy residents.

Book Description :

One essential characteristic of life is the exchange of matter and energy between organisms and their environment. Radiation is a form of energy that has always been around in nature and will forever be the companion of human beings throughout life. In order to assess the impact of radiation exposures properly, it is essential to introduce appropriate quantities and units which can then be used for quantification of exposures from various sources. In principle, radiation protection is mainly aimed at controlling radiation exposure, while radiation dosimetry deals primarily with the measurement of relevant radiation quantities especially doses. This book is divided into two parts. The first contains up-to-date definitions of the most significant radiation quantities including their interpretation. In the second part, the exposures of both individuals and population at large to various types of natural and man-made sources are compared and discussed. The concept of quantities and units as well as analysis of exposure due to various sources in our environment is based on the latest, highly regarded authentic sources such as ICRU, ICRP, IAEA and particularly UNSCEAR reports and recommendations. The material reflects the latest review of the current terminology in radiation protection dosimetry and the contemporary assessment of radiation exposures of the population, radiation workers and patients. Contents:IntroductionRadiation Quantities and Units: Definitions and Interpretations:Quantities and Units — General AspectsSources of RadiationRadiation FieldsInteractions of Radiation with MatterDosimetry Quantities and UnitsQuantities and Units in Radiation ProtectionOther Quantities Recently Adopted by the ICRU and ICRPAssessment of Exposures from Natural and Man-Made Sources:Basis for ComparisonPublic Exposure from Natural RadiationPopulation Exposures from Man-Made SourcesExposures from the Medical Use of Radiation and RadionuclidesOccupational Radiation Exposures Readership: Nuclear physicists, radiation physicists and environmentalists interested in radiation exposures and radioactive contamination. keywords:Radiation Protection;Dosimetry;Radiation Quantities and Units;Radiation Exposure;Medical Exposure;Occupational Exposure;Public Exposure “… an excellent job … especially that of serving as a valuable reference … Thus, if your need is an excellent compilation of the quantities and units associated with radiation protection dosimetry, this book is an excellent choice. If your need is an excellent compilation of population and occupational exposures due to natural and artificial radiation sources, this book is an excellent choice.” John W Poston, Sr. Official Journal of the Health Phys.
